I don’t think people understand how stressful it is to explain what’s going on in your head when you don’t even understand it yourself.
Promachoteuthis sulcus: That creepy squid with human teeth
P. sulcusis distinguished by its physical features- the main and most notable one being its full mouth of human-resembling teeth. The teeth, however, are actually just circular, folded lips. The tentacles are also notable because of their numerous, irregularly arranged rows of tiny suckers.
This squid is known from a single specimen caught in the southern Atlantic Ocean with an open net, at a depth of 5,700-6,600ft, or 1,700-2,000m, by a German research vessel.
Ancient Animal Mummies
Wrapped in linen and carefully laid to rest, animal mummies hold intriguing clues to life and death in ancient Egypt. One hundred years ago, the many thousands of mummified animals that turned up at sacred burial sites throughout Egypt were just things to be cleared away to get at the good stuff. Few people studied them, and their importance was generally unrecognized.
In the century since then, archaeology has become less of a trophy hunt and more of a science. Excavators now realize that much of their sites’ wealth lies in the multitude of details about ordinary folks—what they did, what they thought, how they prayed. Animal mummies are a big part of that.
